Due to being busy and a mental eye infection i haven't had much opportunity to work on this guy but i am getting back on track and thought i would share a couple WIP photos with you. still needs a lot of work but he's getting there.

as always thoughts/comments/criticisms welcome

I have a feeling this is going to turn out incredible. I suggest you go nuts with the details.

omg yes! lol
The bulkier size really suits him and the face sculpt is excellent. Detailed and menacing. I can't wait to see how you finish this guy. Awesome work bro. :)

Nice use of the savage dragon figure. I look forward to the end result.

Finished...well as much as i can be, this figure really introduced me to the joy of joint rub.

Was aiming for a cross between the original cartoon and the mirage comics city at war versions

over all i am "happy" with how he turned out, will probably come back to him and redo the flute and some of the joint rub

and add rats ;)

That looks great; I love his cape!

The sword is probably my favorite part of the whole thing, I mean is all great, the sword sells it though. I did however initially think that the sword was the flute, which I thought would've been awesome,

Truly awesome job my friend and my favorite custom of yours to date. The head sculpt is absolutely perfect and the colors look fantastic too.
I'm going to suggest rubber lego rats for his master's subjects. A custom that cool was meant to rule. :D

Looks great, nice work as always!

This is killer....I would like to see your design animated.
